Dear Parents,

I am so excited to tell you about the Apex Fun Run event coming to our school for the next two weeks!  The Apex program teaches leadership and fitness to our students who are raising pledges for the Fun Run next Thursday, May 21st.

This year's character theme is Apex Extreme, where students will join the Apex team in a nationwide Extreme Race to learn what it means to become an Extreme Leader:

o   Find Your Strengths!
o   Be Brave!
o   Stick Together!
o   Go Big!
o   Say Thanks! 
Students are raising pledges for the laps they run (between 26 and 36, 36-lap max).  Each lap is 1/16th of a mile.  For instance, $1 per lap means $30 dollars to our school if the student runs 30 laps.  Our class has a goal of reaching $2 per lap for each student.

Here's the important part!  The majority of the funds raised this year will go to our school a marquee.  However, the school has promised that an additional 10% of whatever we raise in each class goes directly to that teacher to use in their own classroom. (math and literacy games!!).

Please help us reach our goal by talking to family and friends about pledging for your students.  If you need an access code for, or have other questions please reach out to our team leader Nick –  I hope to see you at the Fun Run next week!

Let's Move Forward Together
Currently there is no cure for MS. The money that is raised at this event and others like it will be used to find the cause, treatment, and ultimately the cure of multiple sclerosis. The money is also used to provide education, information, direct financial aid, and scholarships to individuals and families living with MS. By sponsoring me you too will MAKE YOUR MARK in this pursuit.
